debate on gun reform, president obama is looking for support outside of washington d.c. yesterday at a police academy not far from the site of last year's theater shooting in colorado, the president focused on universal background checks saying his goal is not to take firearms away from their owners. >> the opponents of some of these common sense laws have ginned up fears among responsible gun owners that have nothing to do with what's being proposed and nothing to do with the facts. but feeds into the suspicion about government. if there are any folks who are out there right now who are gun owners and you've been hearing that someone has taken away your guns, get the facts. we're not proposing gun registration system. we're proposing background checks for criminals. >> one of the most fascinating parts of the speech was when he talked about michelle saying if i lived in a rural area and i lived on a farm, i would want a gun in my house. he was talking about this is not about keeping guns away from people. michelle was talking to the president. the president by extension understan

greatly. >> certainly president obama is trying to get the ball back in his court, so to speak, having the fire needed around the country and in washington, d.c. to move on some type of legislation for gun violence reform in this country. as we used president obama as an example, and americans see the first ever african-american president, does that give people a reason to think that we truly do live in a post racial america when we really don't? >> certainly, some people have tried to make that argument. i think when we looked at how our country, some part of our country reacted, we saw the rise of the tea party and frankly, the most vocal profane element of the tea party out there. it reminded people that we can't be post racial until we're post racism. we can't be post racial as long as people are showing up to rallies when they put the white back in the white house. and we as a country, i think all ultimately, most of us yearn to be that one nation, under god, with liberty and justice for all. tragedy is, my daughter is 7. she thinks per where she lives. our job as grown-ups is to

the united states can learn. but, first, here's my take. it's a given that washington is broken. that the two parties seem incapable of coming together to get things done. but here is something president obama could probably do by himself that would be a signal accomplishment of his presidency, end the war on terror. for the first time since 9/11, an administration official sketched out a possible end point. jay johnson, the then general council for the pentagon saidine a recent speech to the oxford union that as the battle against al qaeda continues, there will come a tipping point that so many leaders of al qaeda and its affiliates have been killed and captures such as al qaeda as we know it has been effectively destroyed. at that point he said our efforts should no longer be considered an armed conflict. you might not realize it, but we're still living in a state of war. this is the longest period that the united states has lived in such a situation. longer than the civil war, world war one or world war ii. it grants the president and the federal government extraordinary authority, effecti
